I am a graduate of Eastern Kentucky University and began my career in 1975 in Cincinnati as a CPA with Arthur Andersen and company. I purchased my first Company in 1981, a multi unit nightclub company, with $8 million in sales. Since that time I have owned, operated, managed, bought and sold many different companies in many different industries. I sold my last company, a start up vending company, in 2005 after building sales to $2 million per year.

Over the years I have bought and sold and brokered many companies for myself and others. I have a personal and first hand understanding of business owners, owning a business, and the mental process sellers go through before selling. I also understand buyers and what they are looking for in businesses to buy and their decision making process. I can put this first hand knowledge to good use in bringing buyers and sellers together and being very successful in getting businesses sold.

I have been married to my wife, Mary Helen, for 35 years and we have 5 children.

I was exposed to the world of family-owned business at an early age. As I grew up, I was enlisted to help pack bags of product, stuff envelopes with marketing materials, and clean the surfaces of machines. Anything that I could do to help with my Dad’s various businesses, I did. From this, I grew to appreciate small businesses and the stories behind them.

After graduating from The Ohio State University, my career began in 2016 as a CPA in Private Company Services at PwC. Over five years, I worked with companies ranging in size from multinational conglomerates to start-up tech companies. During that time, I also worked with advertising, marketing, technology, and business development in the business brokerage. In 2020, I accepted an invitation to join Greg Hedgebeth as a full time Partner in the business.

I am an avid Ohio State football and Cincinnati Reds fan. I also dabble in recreational sand volleyball, softball, and golf.

I am a native Cincinnatian and a graduate of St Xavier High School and the University of Cincinnati College of Business. I have been a self – employed business owner my entire career. In my mid 20’s, I owned and operated a multi-unit service business for 10 years. After selling my service business, I purchased, owned and operated for 17 years, and sold a local manufacturing and distribution business. I use my experience in owning and operating companies that I have bought and sold when representing the best interests of both buyers and sellers. I pride myself in giving 100% effort and great service to not only the seller, but the buyer as well. Selling a business is for many owners a once in a lifetime experience, and I am very well versed in making that happen successfully.

I am very active in the community as President of the Cincinnati District Council for St Vincent de Paul, a Christ Hospital communion distributor, a tutor at St Joseph School, a downtown Cincinnati Rotary member, and as a member of Delta Tau Delta Fraternity.

I live in Mt Lookout and have been married to my wife Lisa since 1979 and have 4 children and 4 grandchildren.
